Miflin Block Party

They block off the road so that we can drink all day.

People come from all over to party at UW-Madison for the Miflin Block Party. The weekend before finals---The last big hoorah before crunch time. It was much needed and much enjoyed.

Discussions on Friday

I have a discussion section for a class on Friday afternoon. Although in the real world it seems that having a class on a Friday afternoon would be normal, in college it is ridiculous to think that any student would attend.

It's not the party on Thursday night that makes it hard to got to class on Friday. It's the fact that we've been working our butts off all week and by Friday students are spent. Have a lecture on Friday morning, that's fine, but in discussions you have to actually participate and have energy. It would be one thing if we had the option to have it on Friday or another day-like most classes, but for this class the only diso sections offered are on Friday!

Example: I helped my mom move my Grandma into the nursing home. I went home three weekends in a row- so I missed 3 sections in a row. What am I supposed to do?

Don't force us to have section on Friday afternoon.

Dating in college…what does that even mean? The stereotype is that we have these one night stands all the time. Is that the case or is that just a small percentage of college students?

It’s the time in life when people are starting to think about what they would want in a potential husband/wife. We start to think about qualities, values, what we like in a person what we don’t like. We try dating…sometimes it works out; usually it doesn’t.

And then I think, maybe., it’s just the rate that we go looking for this potential mate that makes it look like college students are hooking up with different people all the time.

Or, maybe everyone is “just looking to hook up.” I don’t think that’s the case.

5 Rules For College Roommates:
1. Get over yourself. It takes two to tango. If you’re having a problem it’s partly your fault. Compromise.
2. If you stink do something about it. No one likes a stinky roommate.
3. Clean up after yourself. (Tip: If you keep up, then cleaning isn’t so bad the next time around. Keep Up!)
4. Ask before you take something that’s not yours.
5. If you owe your roommate money, pay them.

These tips may seem like common sense, but everyone has problems with their roommates. It’s just been recently that I realized through my friends and their roommates that maybe people don’t abide by these roommate rules. Roommate fights are not only stressful for the people that are fighting but it’s stressful for everyone around you too. Follow these rules and you’ll not only save friendships but you’ll also save yourself a lot of grief.
